The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride 2017: an amazing event

ON September 24th, 2017, streets around the world hummed to the tune of classic and vintage style motorcycles as The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride paraded its way through 581 cities, with almost 94,000 dapper men and women raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men’s mental health on behalf of the Movember Foundation.

This year, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has already raised $4.68M USD with fundraising remaining open until October 31st.

This spectacular show of kindness and unity was not only limited to the occasion, with riders raising funds and awareness for eight weeks prior to the event, and a wildly successful DGR x The Rake x Rubinacci Charity Auction which took place in Milan and raised $51.5K USD. A trove of remarkable prizes have been offered to reward fundraisers, and some are still on offer for all fundraisers including brand new Triumph motorcycles, Zenith watches and Hedon helmets.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride aims to reach its goal of $5M USD, with highest fundraiser competitions and the Gentlefolk Competition closing at 11:59 pm October 8th AEST, and all fundraising concluding October 31st. You can do your part to raise funds for this noble cause by donating at
